On our first stop on the reception venues in Paris tour, we’ve got a venue for the view-hunters. This adorable conservatory-style space sits on the banks of a charming canal, offering views you’ll scarcely believe are real.

The glass roof is homely, the fancy lampshades are too stylish for words, and the southern European style metal chairs and tables look like a glorious place to spend an afternoon.

Of course, there’s a buzz to being out on a patio with a favoured tipple. In terms of capacity, this venue can accommodate up to 50 guests for receptions. A high-speed WiFi connection is at your disposal. All you need to do is decide what catering options you’re going to plump for.

If you like the sound of chic private dining, then here is your satisfaction. It is an almost entirely sleek and modern venue. Save, for one striking, rustic feature: the stripped-down medieval wall.

These large wooden beams are out of place, and at the same time, they totally work. They look like they could have been scavenged from Noah’s Ark. They’re destined to add a whole lot of character for your cocktail reception in Paris.

It’s located next to Paris’ beloved Les Halles. Additionally, the space provides its own catering service with multiple menu options based on traditional French cuisine. The room is also equipped with air-conditioning and WiFi.

It stands as a great landmark for 20th-century modernism. Its raw concrete facade and bold-distinct lines are remarkable. So is the sloping green velvet flooring.
